I'm so excited to be a part of the Holiday Home Tour, hosted by Michele at Shelstring.  If you haven't seen the other homes on the tour, they are listed at the bottom of this post, and I know you'll want to go see all of them.

FRIDAY FAVES-KEEPING PROMISES

Christmastime
When I shared my Christmas supper table here, you may have had a glimpse of our Christmas trees.  I told you I'd share more about them later.  So, here it is (or here they are).

CHRISTMAS TIME SUPPER

Christmastime Supper 8

I set a table in front of the fireplace for a relaxed soup and sandwich supper.  (We call it supper if it is a light meal and dinner if it is a heavy meal.  Do you do that?)  I have to tell you about the quilt that covers the table.  Other bloggers are always telling about these great deals they find at Goodwill stores.  I don’t live near a GW store, but when I met some other bloggers in Memphis several years ago, we went to a GW.  I found this quilt for $2.00, and I’ve used it on tables every Christmas since then.  It’s my one and only GW bargain.

FRIDAY FAVES-A CHRISTMAS HOME EDITION


I have such a crush on this beautiful home featured on the Traditional Home site.  The French inspired architecture; the curved windows; and those French blue shutters just make my heart beat a little faster.

CHRISTMAS TABLE REVIEW

Christmas table 1 2013
At Christmastime, all of the family members who were here for Thanksgiving return for Christmas Eve dinner.  So, we have as many place setting for Christmas Eve as we do for Thanksgiving.  We usually seat  between 25 and 30.

Santa Collection 1
Before I was married, I had a little Santa collection.  I’m talking about three or four Santas.
Santa Collection 3
I’ve been married 45 years, and it is so easy to buy me a gift.  Everyone just gifts me with another Santa, and my collection grows, and grows, and …
